Thank you for your kindness to my family, who enjoyed your beautiful home enormously. I was also delighted to spend a few moments playing your fine, and I gather….quite historic Steinway. Congratulations on what you’ve created and maintained so beautifully.
..."It was the first of December, all covered in snow..." Those words from James Taylor will forever bring me back to your place and the wonderful, warm time spent there. We arrived in the Fall (Nov. 30), when I awoke the next morning from a very restful sleep and looked out my balcony window, I knew the beauty James sings about. Quiet, white, home...the Berkshires did seem dreamlike on account of that frosting! The entire stay from beginning to end was full of wonderful images enhanced by your family's warmth and hospitality. The ride back to New York City with Peter Reigert and Ylva Edlestein was dominated with talk about how we all felt we had just experienced a very special, magical few days, thanks in large part to your generosity. That is saying something coming from a bunch of jaded actors.

...Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay with your family in your inn. For a moment I thought I had walked into a Christmas story film. It was beautiful and is now a cherished memory. I look forward to my next stay, whether winter, summer, fall or spring (Vivaldi).

...During the Shakespeare & Company production of my play An Impossible Life, my wife and I -- and the director and cast of the play -- not only stayed at Hampton Terrace, but also hung out there, partied there, and had a wonderful time there. Stan and his family were welcoming and made us all feel so much at home, we all left wishing they would adopt us. A splendid place to work, to play, to rest, and to meet friends and colleagues. We'll be back. Frequently.

What wonderful innkeepers you are! Our visit at your Hampton Terrace last weekend was most delightful and the breakfasts were outstanding and most delicious. Thank you for your most courteous attention and I enjoyed hearing your stories, Stan. Do write them down for the children.
